In a new report, the Better Business Bureau explains the ways that citizens can remain safe if an individual ever arrives at their doorstop to pedal their wares. The organization knows that the possibility of such is greater amid summer weather, and they want consumers to be safe from potential frauds. Residents are advised to speak with the individual from behind a locked door prior to opening that door. If a glass door is available, it’s smart to have the seller provide photo identification and paperwork indicating that they have a license to sell whatever it is they’re selling. Finally, if you feel unsafe or like an offer simply sounds too good to be true, simply say “No Thank You” or opt not to answer the door in the first place.
